Golf Club de Louvain-la-Neuve: At the edge of the Lauzelle wood, the golf course at Louvain-la-Neuve is laid out over a relatively open and gently undulating landscape. One or two small lakes come into play, most noticeably at the short par-4 17th and par-5 18th, and there's plenty of fairway and greenside bunkering to contend with throughout your round.
With quite a few short par-4s in the mix, this is definitely a course on which you should be able to build a good score, especially after you've played it once or twice. The tree-planting of a few years ago is now well on its way to maturity, and has certainly helped toughen-up the layout, compared to yesteryear. If you're not scoring too well, there's an excellent on-site golf academy, offering the opportunity to straighten out most aspects of your game.

The "planned" city of Louvain-la-Neuve (in English "New Louvain") in Walloon Brabant was originally built in the 1960s, to accommodate the Université Catholique de Louvain (UCL). The campus-style university is the largest French-speaking university in Belgium, with over 35,000 students studying there. It was created when language issues split Belgium's largest and oldest university (the Catholic University of Leuven) into two institutions - the Flemish language Katholieke Universiteit Leuven which remained in Leuven, and the Université Catholique de Louvain in Louvain-la-Neuve.

European Senior (Staysure) Tour: the Europe-based over-50s tour for men has taken the reluctant step of cancelling the entire 2020 season, based on the additional coronavirus risk associated with the age demographic of the players.
Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
